We know people who have gotten the OTA update for their G2’s enabling WiFi Calling and Tethering. However, it seems T-Mobile is not ready to comment, if the push was a mistake, or premature. T-Mobile provided an official response to Phonescoop detailing their stance on what happened. Their response wasn’t the response we were looking for but at least they acknowledged that it would be coming, when in another story.
“Wi-Fi Calling and tethering/Wi-Fi sharing are not currently supported on the T-Mobile G2. T-Mobile knows these features are important to consumers and we’re working to deliver them to G2 users in the future. We have nothing further to announce at this time.”
They clearly state that they know these features are important to consumers, and that they are currently planning to deliver them in the future. Without a timeline we have nothing to go off of, which could be a good move on T-Mobile’s behalf. Without a timeline it can’t get officially delayed, as we with much software releases, and there will be no disappointment.
We are currently unaware if users are still getting pushed the update, or if it has been cut.
